Le Mans keeper Yohann Pele has admitted he wants to move to England.
The highly-rated number one was not allowed to leave the club last summer, but chairman Henri Legarda has now revealed he will be able to depart at the end of this season.
Pele admits he struggled for form at the start of the season mainly due to the fact he was not allowed to leave.
"Last summer I wanted to leave," he admitted.
"With the disappointment may be it had some repercussions for me early in the season - but now I am attracted by England."
Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old in recent months.
